Reform of the RAS - the way to effective science through the redistribution of property?

News of the week, which took the Russian scientific community by surprise: the Government is starting a large-scale reform of Russian science. The relevant bill, which has already received the approval of Prime Minister Medvedev, is soon ready to consider in the State Duma.

Reform of the RAS - the way to effective science through the redistribution of property?According to the newspaper Kommersant, the three leading academies: the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences cease to exist autonomously, merging into one social organization - the Russian Academy of Sciences.

At the same time, some of the institutions and institutions will come under the wing of the new agency, reporting directly to the Prime Minister; some will go to other power structures, for example, the Ministry of Health; some will be eliminated.

The management system of the academies “needs updating”, scientists should be engaged in science, and not manage the property - this is the keynote of Dmitry Medvedev's speech at a government meeting held on June 27.

However, the scientists themselves, such a desire to make their lives easier, freeing them from “unusual functions,” is clearly not pleased. Vladimir Evgenyevich Fortov, who was elected president of the Russian Academy of Sciences on May 29 (and still not approved by the president in the post), said: the Government’s decision was a “big surprise” for him. The famous physicist doubted that the structure with the “two heads” (in the academy and in the federal agency) would function normally.

The only Russian Nobel laureate in physics living in Russia, Zhores Ivanovich Alferov, expressed concern about the haste of the actions taken and the choice of starting the reform of the “holiday season”. All this, according to the academician, pursues only one goal - to take away property from the RAS.
